Beautiful home with large (heated) caged pool, short walk to private beach access, facing nature preserve on river on Sanibel Island, FL. All new interior, with granite/stainless steel kitchen and lovely furnishings. Sleeps 8, 2 1/2 baths. Available monthly.
Sanibel is a uniquely wonderful place. Having discovered it when our children were young, we always kept it in mind as a 'warm weather' home location. After looking up and down the coast from SC to FL we decided that, indeed, Sanibel is the very best place in the US for a beach home. The climate is very much like the Carribean and the flora, fauna and wildlife are very similar to Hawaii. Since I continue to teach in Georgetown (DC), we have offered our home for rental.
Our private beach access is only three tenths of a mile away. Our screened pool and large enclosed deck face the Sanibel River, with a constantly beautiful view of wildlife and sunsets. The front porch is a lovely place to watch the sunrise!
